Is God Funky or What? The Dynamics of Power, Music, and Black Healing
A Four-part Web Series
Part 1: Thursday, October 1, 7:30pm-8:30pm
Livestream and Q&A:
At a time when the disproportionate effects of COVID-19, policing, and disenfranchisement of communities of color have been laid bare, we will examine the dynamic interplay of race, protest, music, healing, religion, and post-colonial theory.
Dr. Micheal Viega (John J. Cali School of Music, Music Therapy) and Dr. Kate E. Temoney, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Department of Religion) invite you to participate in a one-hour web series inspired by the 2019 book by Dr. Theodore W. Burgh: Is God Funky or What? Black Biblical Culture and Contemporary Popular Music. Dr. Burgh is a musician, archeologist, and Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion and the University of North Carolina Wilmington. This is the inaugural event of a four-part web series during the 2020-2021 academic year, and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions (and maybe even hear a note or two). This event is free and open to the public.
Thanks again for your ongoing support.I am interested in finding a school partner with a predominantly Latinx population from across the Latin American diaspora that can engage in developing a collaborative teacher community grounded in descriptive inquiry (DI). The goal of the project is to see if a process like DI can lead to academic growth and increased social-emotional support for Latinx English Language Learners (ELLs) and students with disabilities. Additionally, I am interested in understanding how the collaborative community developed through the DI processes can help teachers feel more supported thus leading to increased teacher satisfaction and teacher retention.This would be a great opportunity for a school to develop their own in-house community of expert teachers who can lead the charge in decreasing inequality for children of color, ELLs, and children with disabilities within their schools and potentially their district as a whole.
At a time of planetarian stasis, it may seem odd to talk about transnationalism; and, yet, more than ever, we have become aware of the interconnections existing around the world. What insights can a transnational model offer us to critically rethink cultural and socio-economic relationships while keeping in mind older forms of border crossing (colonialism, imperialism, historical diasporas) and also the contemporary circulation of people, goods and ideas (mass migrations, global markets, social media networks)?
Join us on Sun. Oct. 4 (3pm EST) for Transnational Italian Studies within Transnational Modern Languages: A Book and Handbook Presentation in conversation with the authors (Charles Burdett, Loredana Polezzi, Derek Duncan and Jennifer Burns), moderated by Teresa Fiore with the contributions of Giulia Riccò and Serena Bassi.
This online event is of relevance to students, faculty, and scholars in, among others, Modern/World Languages, Global/International Studies, Education, Social Sciences, Arts and the Humanities, Communication and Environmental Studies, Business, as well as members of the community at large with an interest in multiple forms of belonging and exchange across languages, cultures and nations.
